In you are arrested for DUI, law enforcement will ask you to submit to a breath or blood test to confirm your guilt. They will read you a statement called implied consent, which, in part, will advise that your refusal to submit to testing will result in your driver's license being suspended.
If you agree to take the test, law enforcement will ask you to provide two breath samples into a machine. This machine will calculate your BAC and print out a report. The results on this test can make or break your case.
- If your BAC is over .08, you are presumed to be legally impaired.
- If your BAC is over .05 but less than .08, there is no presumption that you were or were not impaired.
- If your BAC is .05 or less, you are presumed NOT to be under the influence to the extent your normal faculties are impaired.
